home > recipes > cakes > rum cake
I usually avoid recipes that use cake mix, but this one is a winner. I served this last night at my husband's birthday party, alongside a rather involved Mexican chocolate torte from the pages of Gourmet magazine. The rum cake was a bigger hit. This recipe comes from Bacardi. About 20 years ago the company displayed this recipe near bottles of rum in the liquor store. That's when my mother first discovered it. Rum Cake 1 c. chopped pecans (walnuts will do) 1 18.5-oz. box yellow cake mix (do not use the sort with pudding in the mix) 1 3.75-oz. vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 1/2 c. cold water 1/2 c. oil 1/2 c. rum Mix all cake ingredients together. Bake in bundt or tube pan at 325 for one hour. Let cool slightly and remove from pan. Glaze when cool. Glaze: 1/4 lb. butter 1/4 c. water 1 c. sugar 1/2 c. rum Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in water and sugar. Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add rum. In order to glaze the cake, first use a carving fork to poke holes in the top and sides of the cake. Slowly spoon glaze over cake. It will take a while for the cake to soak up all the glaze. Sometimes it is necessary to let the cake stand for five minutes or so in the midst of glazing so it can absord the liquid. Then continue to glaze the cake until the glaze is all used up.

I make this cake with vanilla rum and serve it with a teaspoon full of fresh whipped cream. It is always a hit!

This cake is excellent, and I just made it again for a family Christmas party. You can make it with pudding-in-the-mix cake mixes, just omit pudding, reduce eggs to three and oil to 1/3 cup. But the ideas of different cake and pudding flavors sounds so good that next time I'll have to try one.

I make this one all of the time. It great! I also tried replacing the vanilla pudding with banana and it is fantastic! Try it.

To make different varieties, I use different combinations of cake mix and pudding. My fella loves it made with spice cake and butterscotch pudding, while my best friend prefers chocolate/chocolate. I've even made it with cherry chip cake mix and vanilla pudding, topped with cherries - HUGE hit!

This recipe is a hit but to make it even better, the trick is in the application of the sauce. Poke about a million holes in it with a toothpick all over before and after turning out of pan. Turn out onto a plate or tray with a lip. After turning out and pouring the sauce on, bust out the turkey baster and baste the top and sides until most of the sauce is absorbed.

I found this same recipe on a rum bottle in the Cayman Islands 21 years ago; made it then and have made it ever since. I like it better than the Cayman famous Tortuga Rum Cakes made in the Caymans and distributed all over the world.

I made this recipe 23 years ago seeing it on the back label of the rum bottle. It was an absolute hit; for a party I'm giving tomorrow I decided Rum Cake would make a diverse addition to the dessert fare. I can't wait for my guests to try it.

I have to agree with you. This makes a great gift and it is VERY easy. It is a family favorite for us, and we have tried chocolate too and it is good as well as the yellow.

I have encountered this recipe already and I definitely agree that it is a winner. You can use any kind of butter cake instant mix and it will come out ok. You can even omit the nuts. The quality of the rum does matter, though. I always use Bacardi Gold R
